Heed the Call – A poem for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles.



This poem was written for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles, please click on the link below to see the post:



It takes a lot of courage,

To remain serene,

When there is pollution everywhere

And the Oceans are unclean.

It takes tremendous bravery

and hope, to give birth

when you’re the keeper of the planet.

When you’re Mother Earth.

Have faith for humankind

Has chosen to heed the call.

The environmentalists have spoken,

We have signed the protocol.

If we want the world to continue

We must change once and for all.

Serene in the Sands of Time – The Riddle of the Sphinx.

One of the most majestic riddles in our world is the Riddle of the Sphinx. She lays there, partially buried, serene in the sand. How old is she? Why was she built? Does she guard the pyramids, or does she predate them? Was she constructed by a powerful pharaoh with the face of his favourite partner and built by an army of underdog slaves? Or was she placed there by some mysterious alien race to kick-start a civilisation on earth? Many stories have been written, but none have come close to the truth. It is a riddle that will never be solved unless scientists bypass the universal laws of physics and invent some kind of time travel device. Some wonders are not meant to be understood, only enjoyed.
